Default Skinny Wraps?

my friend wants to start selling these. Do they really work? She lost 5 or 7 inches in 72 hours... any thought?

Never heard of them. But my instinct tells me it's water weight, and that no they really don't work. I always say (and it's not original), if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

My thought on that kinda stuff is it might be useful for an event where you want to look a little smaller. I'm sure it all comes back within a couple days.

It's just water. Losing water doesn't do you any good: you want to lose fat.

It's temporary. Good if you want to fit into a dress for an event, not good if you want to keep those inches off.

Entertainingly, One of the before and after picture pairs came with the disclaimer:

"No inch loss according to tape measure."

I'm with you Unwanted37, my friend just had it done this Sunday and said she lost 2.25" from her tummy area. Now I'm very tempted, but it does sound too good to be true and fear I'll just be wasting my money. Anybody here have any more information?

You could get the same effect from dehydrating the heck out of yourself. Naw, I think I'll pass.
